The South Luangwa Valley Series | Episode 1

The Expectation Gap

In this first episode we discuss why we decided to move to Zambia and what our original expectations were. Everyone has expectations and problems occur when these are not met. Because of this we may become resentful or unhappy. This is what creates a “gap” between expectations and reality. The discussion in this episode is to point out the expectations set forward by Sarah’s employer in the South Luangwa Valley and our naivety. Our intentions are not to place blame on anyone but ourselves and to educate others on how to manage their expectations. By learning how to manage our expectations, we can maintain a balance, feel more content, and enjoy the outcomes instead of feeling disappointment.
